  • What Laptop should i get

    Hey,

    Looking at moving away from a desktop setup to a laptop based system (possibly some sort of screen to use as a dock for when im at home)

    Love the look of the macbook pro's but im a .net developer so would have to boot windows on it which kinda defeats the point of mac.

    Budgets around £1500 any ideas? needs to be fast, but its mostly web work (nothing too processor intensive)

    My friend runs VS 2010 via Parallels on his macbook and says its awesome.

    Tried it on my 1 year old macbook, but its makes the macbook a bit sluggish when the vm is running.

      Sorry I should have added....

      I thought the same as you and purchased a very sexy Alienware laptop, but its so bloody heavy it doesn't ever get moved off my desk, so I might as well have got a desktop.

        Parallels is great, as long as you have enough RAM for it. As soon as you run out of RAM, it will thrash your swap like *******!

                Ultrabooks are meant to be pretty impressive
                Views are my own and most likely wrong

                  My friend has recently purchased a Samsung ultrabook and i can vouch for its build quality, he bought it on the strength of the review here Samsung Series 9 900X3B review - Laptop - Trusted Reviews
